This is a magnificent collection of poetry. The editor features the famous along with such lesser-known poets as Edward Taylor, Jones Very, William Ellery Channing II, Frederick Goddard Tuckerman and Anne Bradstreet, the first female (and Puritan) poet to be published. Introductory comments are interesting. "Here Cain and Abel come to sacrifice; Fruits of the Earth and Fatlings each do bring: On Abel's gift the fire descends from Skies, But no such sign on false Cain's offering. With sudden hateful looks he goes his ways, Hath thousand thoughts to end his brothers days, Upon whose blood his future good he hopes to raise. Who fancies not his looks now at the Bar ? His face like death, his heart with horror fraught. No Malefactor ever felt like war When deep despair with wish of life hath fought. Branded with guilt and crusht with treble woes, A Vagabond to Land of Nod he goes; ..." (Bradstreet) "
A collection of Robert Frost's poems with background information by Louis Untermeyer
